From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


A comfortable and welcoming holiday home with a log burner situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Delightful former blacksmith’s forge dating back to the 18th century, featuring the original beams, a canopied open fire and a wrought-iron spiral staircase. Close to the owners’ home, it stands within its own garden down a country lane, within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local walking books are provided to help explore the surrounding area and the nearby Malvern Hills. The Three Counties Showground is 5 minutes away and there is also easy access to Malvern itself, Upton on Severn, Eastnor Castle, Ledbury, Tewkesbury and Worcester. It is a short walk to the village green, shops and pub. There are many festivals and tourist attractions held locally throughout the year, but none near enough to spoil the tranquillity of the holiday cottage. Shops ½ mile.

Entrance porch. Beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove and farmhouse-style kitchen. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower. Spiral, open-tread stairs to gallery first floor landing: Beamed double bedroom with Victorian antique bed and Velux windows. Bathroom with toilet.

    Very enjoyable weeks break made all the more pleasant by the friendliness of the helpful owners. Excellent base for long or short walks.

    Diana and Geoff greeted us warmly and the delicious cake was most appreciated after our long journey. They couldn't have been kinder. The location was brilliant for us with the dog and there is wonderful walking on the Malvern Hills. We had everything we needed in the cottage, enjoyed its spaciousness and it was very clean and tidy. The spiral staircase wouldn't suit a lot of people but did not pose a problem for us. Rocco mastered it very quickly! Our only very slight quibble was the size of the bath towels. We certainly hope to go back again.

    Everything was perfect apart from the cooker breaking, but that could not be helped, and I know had our stay been longer it would have been dealt with while we were there.

    This is by far the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in anywhere in the country! It is the first time I haven't felt that I should wash the cutlery and crockery before using it. We had a very warm welcome from the owners. It is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and furnished, and in a lovely peaceful location which is nevertheless close to everywhere we wanted to go. We were particularly impressed by the totally safe dog-friendly lawn at the front and the enclosed garden space at the back: even our lively young Labrador couldn't get out! We enjoyed the log fire but the central heating kept the cottage nice and warm without it. There was plenty of safe parking space for our two cars, not on the road. We are not surprised that the property has three Gold Awards and they certainly deserve another one, in our opinion! NB We were not on holiday - we moved out of our own house while we had a new kitchen fitted.
